My Dad is a junker. He has been a garage sale shopper, curbside junk picker-upper, auction goer, go-to junk guy, eBay seller for years and years. He happens to be my favorite picker. I get a lot of goodies for Primitiques from Dad's garage and pickup truck.
The other day I stopped by my folks' house and spied this beauty in the garage. I knew Dad would have aspirations for it...an eBay auction or a live auction in town. He'd have plans alright. But, when I hit my knees and started begging with tears in my eyes, he said "yes". Yes! YES! He told me I could have it for my birthday, which is a full 8 months away!
I promise to post pics when it is up on a wall in my house. Isn't it magnificent? In case you can't tell, it is about 2 feet high. It's humongous! Wonderful! I don't know if it works. Don't care. Love it! Here's one in working condition. I actually prefer it all white.
